300 or 338 Winchester Magnum?

I am about to get one of the above (link here) . I would appreciate some advice as to which will be more suitable for long distance target shooting?
Thanks.
BTW I am aware that there are better options but my question is strictly about the above calibres.

For long distance target shooting the 300 Win Mag get the nod hands down over the 338 Win Mag. There are WAY more match quality bullets available for the 30cal. Also the 300 Win Mag is a proven winner in many competitions. It will also make a good longrange hunting rifle if you decide on using it for hunting.
JMHO,
Wayne

I am thinking about building another 300 win mag. Is there a improved varriant out there that is worth looking at?

I don't belive so. The standard .300 Win Mag is pretty good as it is. If there were and improved version you would probably only gain 50 fps anyway. It is a very good round as it is.
